Shape snowman craft

Sharing is caring!

Let’s pair winter crafting with math and make an easy shape snowman craft today. We’ll review several shapes: circle, oval, square, rectangle, triangle and hexagon.

This is a great craft for preschoolers, kindergartners and first graders. You can make it at home with them, or if you are a teacher, in the classroom with your students.

Shape snowman craft - winter craft for kids

You can draw the shapes yourself or you can use the snowman template I have prepared. Add more shapes, or stick to the ones in the template.

With each snowman craft, the kids can work with two or three different shapes: the head, the eyes and the nose. While we matched the eye shape with the head shape in our craft, you can mix it up. The nose will remain the same shape: a triangle.

The paper snowman also comes with a cute hat. You can add some small snowflakes to it or another detail, if you like.

This snowman is a great addition to our snowman craft collection as well as our shape crafts. We really enjoy including shapes in our crafts and have created quite a few shape crafts along the years, from this adorable shape Cat in the Hat to this popular shape Santa.

How to make a shape snowman craft

The shape snowman template comes with two versions:

1. home template – print the template, cut out the patterns and trace them on appropriate paper.

2. classroom template – print the pattern directly on colored paper and cut them out.

This way you can easily craft with just one or two kids as well as with a classroom full of students.

Step by step directions for home crafting

Part of the home template can be printed directly on white paper and used as is (the head and eyes). For the rest of the template (nose and hat), you will have to cut out the patterns and trace them on corresponding colored paper.

To make  the shape snowman, you will need: 1 white snowman head, 1 black hat, 1 orange nose and 2 eyes.

Start by gluing the hat on top of the head.

Glue the eyes onto the head.

Glue the nose under the eyes

Use a black marker to draw the mouth.

Step by step directions for classroom crafting

Print the classroom template on corresponding colored paper. The head and eyes are printed on white paper, the nose is printed on orange paper. The hat can be printed on either black paper (the outline patterns) or on white paper (the black patterns).

To make  the shape snowman, each student will need: 1 white snowman head, 1 black hat, 1 orange nose and 2 eyes.

Start by gluing the hat on top of the head.

Glue the eyes onto the head.

Glue the nose under the eyes

Use a black marker to draw the mouth.
